Book Description
The English Bulldog is one of those breeds that you know on sight. That short snout, stocky frame, underbite, and spiral tail are simply unmistakable for any other breed. They look quite intimidating too. But don’t be fooled. Behind that tough-looking façade is a dog with a goofy disposition, surprising intellect, and a heart of gold. In The Complete Guide to English Bulldogs you will learn everything you need to know from start to end; how to choose a puppy, training, traveling, grooming, health care and senior care. You will also learn all about the background of the breed, its history, breed pre-disposed diseases, and special traits. All the information is specific to Bulldogs and in easy-reading comprehensive detail. Find answers to questions like: Is a English Bulldog the right dog for me? Should I buy from a breeder or adopt from a rescue? I brought my Bulldog home. What now? How can I best train my Bulldog? What are some common mistakes should I avoid? Whether you are a veteran or novice Bulldog owner, there will be something for everyone in this book. Chapters include all the basics such as: A Unique Look – The Bulldog Breed History and Characteristics The Ideal Home Finding Your Bulldog Preparing for Your Puppy The First Week The First Month Housetraining Socialization and Experience Being a Bulldog Parent Living with other dogs Training Your Bulldog Basic Commands Nutrition Grooming – Productive Bonding Basic Health Care Health Concerns Your Aging Bulldog That unforgettable face has always hidden the absolutely darling dog’s real potential. Bulldogs are not a high-energy dog, but not all of them are couch potatoes either. Bulldogs are shockingly intelligent as well, which often takes people by complete surprise (if they are basing their opinion of the dog purely on looks). One of the reasons people are so familiar with Bulldogs is that this is a breed that is considered intimidating – simply based on their looks. This has made them one of the most popular mascots in the world. They are the face of high schools, colleges, and universities, as well as sports teams. They make great mascots because they love people and don’t mind being the center of attention. As a fairly low maintenance dog, they are great for families of nearly every type. They can be fairly stubborn, but with a loving and consistent approach, they will quickly come to understand the benefits of behaving. That high intellect also means that if your Bulldog has the desire, they can be great in competitions such as Obedience and Agility. Of course, if you prefer a couch potato, many of them love that too.

Book Description
Berner Sennenhund Erziehung - Hundeerziehung für Deinen Berner Sennenhund Welpen Hundeerziehung wird häufig... ... mit dem klassischen Abrichten eines Hundes verwechselt ... nur für anspruchsvolle Hunde als notwendig erachtet ... von Hundehaltern belächelt ... durch antiautoritäre Erziehung ersetzt ... als zu schwierig angesehen, um es ohne Erfahrung zu schaffen Doch was macht Hundeerziehung wirklich aus und wofür ist sie überhaupt gut? Und wie können Dein Berner Sennenhund und Du auch völlig ohne Erfahrung davon profitieren? Das Wichtigste ist erst einmal zu verstehen, wie ein Hund seine Umwelt wahrnimmt, was für ihn „normal" ist und wie Du das für Dich nutzen kannst. Darüber hinaus sind die Eigenheiten einer jeden Rasse entscheidend, wenn es um die spätere Erziehung geht. Dein Berner Sennenhund weist beispielsweise andere Charaktereigenschaften als ein Chihuahua auf und genau diese sind in der Hundeerziehung schwerpunktmäßig zu berücksichtigen. Dies ist der erste Teil der Berner Sennenhund Erziehungsbücher. Teil 2 für Deinen ausgewachsenen Berner Sennenhund findest du unter dem Titel "Berner Sennenhund Training – Hundetraining für Deinen Berner Sennenhund". Teil 3 zur Pflege Deines Berner Sennenhundes findest Du unter dem Titel "Berner Sennenhund Pflege – Pflege, Ernährung und Krankheiten rund um Deinen Berner Sennenhund". Die Autorin Claudia Kaiser sagt selbst über ihr Buch: „Mir war es ein Bedürfnis, anderen Hundehaltern von dem Wissen, dass ich mir über lange Jahre und auch durch viele Fehler hart erarbeitet habe, profitieren zu lassen. Ich liebe meine Hunde und weiß, wie wichtig es ist, die Hundeerziehung an die jeweilige Rasse anzupassen. Und genau aus diesem Impuls entstand dieses Buch. Mein Ziel ist es, dass jeder Anfänger durch mein Buch seinen Hund nicht nur besser versteht, sondern auch genau weiß, wie er ihn Schritt für Schritt erzieht, damit eine enge, positive und vertrauensvolle Mensch-Hund-Beziehung entsteht." Sei gespannt auf viele Hintergründe, Erfahrungsberichte, Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen und Geheimtipps die sich maßgeschneidert auf Deinen Berner Sennenhund beziehen. Sichere Dir noch heute dieses Buch und erfahre... ... wie Dein Berner Sennenhund seine Welt wahrnimmt ... und wie Du ihn darauf aufbauend am besten erziehst. Dein Berner Sennenhund wird es Dir danken... ... daher ist mein Tipp: Greife schnell zu! Inhalt des Buches: Was Du über Deinen Berner Sennenhund wissen musst Grundpfeiler der Welpenerziehung Bevor der Welpe kommt Die ersten Wochen Das Training der Grundkenntnisse Checklisten für den Start Fazit
